A touch of Ria

People are naturally drawn to symmetry and balanced proportions. However, Ria Prieto chose to look the other way and thought of highlighting imperfection in her jewelry collaboration with Jul B. Dizon. Drawing from her experiences as an editor and stylist, Ria designed pieces that are off-kilter. Titled, “Skewed,” the new collection features mismatched earrings, pearls in odd positions, and off-the-center stones. These new jewelry pieces disrupt the norms, imbuing a sense of play with beauty. For enthusiasts of unique pieces, Skewed is the perfect jewelry to start conversations in social affairs.

Sassi stuns with new pieces

You may have heard of Sassi Fine Jewelry when the brand arrived in Manila early this year, garnering attention for its glamorous and easy-to-wear pieces. Before the year ends, Sassi chose Lifestyle Asia’s May 2019 cover personality Juliana Gomez as the new face of its Autumn/Winter 2019 collection. She embodies the spirit of the Sassi woman with her beauty and charming personality. The exquisite designs of the pieces Juliana highlights go back to Renilde Vervoort. An art historian and gemologist, Renilde’s fascination for gemstones and stories from the past led to the creation of Sassi Fine Jewelry. Among its latest collections are the Nika and Staffa rings, both unforgettable for its uniqueness.

Nika collection

Nika sets itself apart with its versatility that makes it the perfect jewelry of the confident, on-the-go woman. You can adjust to the right length through a sliding lock. The new necklace features a 30mm medallion while the new bracelet has 5 small medallions. All the pendants can be reversed. No matter which way you move, you would not need to adjust the face of the jewelry, making it truly flexible and unique.

Staffa rings

In a preview, Renilde shared the interesting story behind the creation of Staffa rings. She got inspired by the creation of stirrups that changed society in the Middle Ages. With the development of stirrups that changed the way of doing warfare, people began sharing stories about the battlefield. It slowly opened communication among different people, eliminating class divisions.

Renilde thought of translating this story through the Staffa rings shaped like stirrups. With a simpler design, the Staffa come in different gems. The ones with orange sapphires are part of Sassi’s ongoing project “Orange the World.” The proceeds of the ring until December 10 will be donated to Chameleon, a non-government organization that helps sexually abused young girls and women.
